it in new york and san francisco and seattle and chicago, all of these places, in the london and paris. we see the try um of the developed world cities. but the success of the city in the developed world is nothing relative to what's happening in the developing world. we've recently reached that halfway point where more than half of humanity now lives in urbanized areas, and it's hard not to think on net that's a good thing because when you compare those countries that are more than 50% urbanized, the more urbanized countries have on average income levels that are five times higher and infant mortality levels that are less than a third. gandhi famously said the growth of a nation depends not on its cities, but on its villages. but with all due respect to the great man, on this one he was completely and utterly wrong. because, in fact, the future of india is not made in villages which is too often remaining mired in the unending rural poverty that has plagued most of humanity throughout almostal of its -- almost all of it existence. it is mumbai, it is delhi, that are the pathways out of po
're going to find some way to put him back in prison. jason actually lives here in seattle now. whenever we first got out, the morning after we got out we came to the seattle. he liked it so much that he never left. he decided he wanted to live here. he is in college at the present time. what time. what he wants to do eventually is go to law school and get his law degree and help people are in the same situation we were in, but he can't even do that with a criminal record. once he gets his law degree he still can't practice law until we are exonerated. >> you guys came a day after your release because i understand eddie vedder and his family and i think eddie vedder is in the band -- [laughter] up and coming here in town. they brought you here, right? and, like, took a shopping. >> a the was in the courtroom today we walked out. became the just to be there for that. he brought straight year. today that we left arkansas, we left like refugees. i did not have a single penny in my pocket. i didn't even have a city close to change into. we had nowhere to go. so eddie brought us here, and his wi
would object but usually when i was giving a talk in seattle they would say something to the point of progressive activists of course aarsele to the ghazaliya. it's the politicians that are dividing the real conversation today they are the real pros finance people. okay. really? let's look. president barack obama, the number one progressive politicians in america jesus in his inaugural address january 24, 2009 will restore science to its rightful place. that is a lofty goal for a politician. how did he do it? .. >> it lifted the ban, the quote-unquote ban, on federal funding. so today as of the time i put this talk together, about a pont ago, there were 178 embryonic stem cell lines available for federal funding, but there are 760 lines available globally. so he increased it from about 21 lines to 178 lines. most notably, they must be derived, these embryonic stem cells must be derived from leftover invitro fertilization embryos, and permission is required from apartments. that has -- from parents. that has the effect of really limiting the number of embryonic stem cells that you c
in the anti globalization movement since seattle, it's important, to identify the problem has located at the level of the imf, at the level of these g-7 meetings orgy 20 meetings of finance ministers, central bankers, and leaders. and that is where the protesters. and in the book we point out that right after seattle in april 2000, the next big was in washington, the imf meeting. the protesters walked silently past 1500 pennsylvania avenue where the treasury building is located to protest at the imf. and that kind of misses were the real power lies. there is nothing the imf does that the treasury does not allowed to do. treasury is a far more powerful agency in the management of global capital than the imf. and so i think you also need to get our eyes clear on where real power lies than perhaps has been true in the protest movement against globalization in the last 10-15 years. >> i think this is an appropriate place to wrap it up. i think you will be available to sign books and further conversation. so thank you for a stimulating night. >> thank you so much. [applause] >> is there a
for president obama in seattle with it amazing support organization there that shows 23 homeless people looked at medical expenses the year before and the year after. 23 people they saved $1 million of medical expenses because it is far more expensive especially with mental health to leave them on the street this is what the study did not do but it by a that one man who was teaching people about cooking. we have babe backwards way to think that if you are a republican it should be biggest cause it is wasteful government propelled. >> we will make you late so i will off per one thought and give you the last word. would reverse meant i remember saying i like your tie. you took it off and give it to me. i think you offer that your country. you offer your light to those signed letter but those all across the country inspired buy you and the late that you draw us to with hope and optimism i was stumped when an acreage a woman said it is the really as sexy?

to canonize her in 2005-2006 there was a young boy, native american in the state of washington, near seattle, and he was playing basketball, and he fell down and hit his lip on the pedestal of the basketball hoop. and he was afflicted with the flesh-eating bacteria. and if you go online, you can either google her name or his name. it's jake finkbonner. they have pictures of him when he was in the throes of this malady. so jake finkbonner had survived. his surgeons were absolutely miraculous in the way they were able to graft skin to cover what had been consumed by the bacteria, and they attributed his survival, his cure to her intersession. so that was verified that supernormal or paranormal occurrences can only come from above. that was in '05 or '06 when he had that malady. and then they decided to canonize her last year, i think it was in december of 2011. and they put it forward on october 21, 2012, was the date of her canonization. a novelized biography is something where you take the facts, and you try to tell a story out of them, and you impute motive, and you try to get a human psych

a balance sheet analysis of things, we'll change. i was campaigning for president obama in seattle and was with a amazing supportive housing organization there that showed they had 23 homeless people that they looked at their medical expenses, um, for the year before they came into their supportive housing and the year after. 23 people, they saved their local hospital a million dollars in medical expenses was we all -- because we all know it's far more expensive to leave somebody, especially if they have a mental health issue and other things, it's far more expensive leaving them on the street than to come in and empower them. and this is what the study didn't really do. it talked about medical expenses, but i went to visit some of the residents. i went one man who now was volunteering, who now was teaching people about cooking and making contributions. so we have a backwards way of thinking about this. this is why i think our criminal justice system in america is the most -- if you're a republican, that should b be your biggest cause to go after because it's big, wasteful governme
